No bashing to this question, but I was on here the other day and somebody said that President Elect Obama was considered black because that is what his father was! So my question is that I have foster brothers that are the same skin tone as Mr. Obama but they have a white dad so are they considered white because of there dad or black? Just really courious. Don't get me wrong I love these kids I treat them as my own! I was just really curious! They come from ruf homes and I am proud of my parents for taking them and raising them as thier own. There friends at school ask them if they are black and my 8 year old brother says no my mom and dad are white how do you deal with that question at that age?
Hmmm...I heard the opposite. I heard that he was considered white because they used his MOTHER'S race as a reference.
I personally don't think either of those are correct at all. He is biracial and is considered biracial. His skin color is "black" (or brown), thus he is related to as a "black person". On a child's birth certificate race is NOT stated. When it comes to legal documents, most often biracial people check the box next to BOTH of their ethnicity's or they check the "other" box. Actually now-a-days, some documents have a box for "mixed races".
